I had a DeLonghi Magnifica that I used from 2009 and it finally died in 2022. Got Magnifica XS to replace. Smaller footprint, pretty. Maybe it just takes time to get used to something new. It makes good foam. I’m not 100% sure I will keep it. Doesn’t hold as many beans, cup warmer doesn’t seem to get warm at all, seems like the espresso shots are pretty short and not as strong even with the dial turned all the way up. Doesn’t hold as much water. Don’t get me wrong, I like the machine but I just liked my old machine better.
